Overview

The Mazant is a historic plantation-style home dating back to the early 1880s and located in the heart of New Orleans' Bywater arts district - about 1.5 miles from the French Quarter (30 minutes walking or 8 minutes by Uber).  We are also close to Bacchanal, Bywater Bakery, The Joint, The Country Club, Elizabeth's, and Satsuma Cafe.  It's perfect for family reunions, wedding parties, company off-sites, and other large groups.

The house was recently renovated to preserve historic details including 13' ceilings with plaster medallions, heart pine wood floors, cypress doors, and a 125-year old oak tree. At the same time, we updated the layout to more comfortably accommodate large groups:

  • 18-person dining room table
  • Oversized living room with 70-inch television, surround sound system, and Baldwin upright piano
  • Private yard (1/3 acre) with fire pit, six-burner propane BBQ, outdoor table, and hammocks
  • Super fast WiFi (the top tier that Cox offers)
  • Front porch (gallery) with historic gas lamps and outdoor seating
  • Off-street parking for two cars and ample street parking for overflow

Bedrooms

The house has eight bedrooms with layout as follows:

Downstairs

  • Bedroom 1: one queen bed (semi-private bathroom with shower)
  • Bedroom 2: one king bed (ensuite bathroom with shower)

Upstairs

  • Bedroom 3: one queen bed (ensuite bathroom with shower/tub combo)
  • Bedroom 4: one double bed
  • Bedroom 5: one twin bunkbed 
  • Bedroom 6: one king bed
  • Bedroom 7: one king bed
  • Bedroom 8: one queen bed

There are two additional shared bathrooms upstairs: one with a clawfoot tub (with shower) and another tub/shower combo.

For larger groups, we also have a separate guest cottage that has a queen bed, full kitchen, and full bathroom (with clawfoot tub/shower). It is available upon request for an additional fee.

Outdoor Space

The house is located on an oversized, corner lot with multiple outdoor spaces:

  • The side yard is fenced for privacy and has a large law panel surrounded by gravel (limestone), with several bistro sets and a colorful bench.  This yard can accommodate a 30' x 30' tent for events.
  • The cottage yard has a large lawn (able to be tented for events), oak tree, magnolia tree, and hedge.  We generally do not allow tents in this yard.
  • The rear courtyard is paved and fenced.  It includes a large table with seating for 20 and a six-burner BBQ, as well as overhead string lights.
  • The back corner of the side yard has seating for 12 around a natural gas-fed fire pit and a water fountain.
